Full Blue Moon 27º Scorpio
Full Moon opposing the Sun & Mercury in Taurus (& Fixed Star Algol)
Venus & Uranus conjunct in Taurus
Mercury in Taurus trine Pluto Rx in Capricorn
First Venus & Mars moved into Taurus & Cancer on Wednesday - undoubtedly awakening the archetypal feminine & masculine changed signs; we felt their polarity clash hard straight away.
This weekend sees the Full Moon in Scorpio come through - illuminating darkness & depth - facilitating transformation in the process. This Full Moon opposes the Sun & Mercury in Taurus & sees Venus & Uranus conjoin also in Taurus - a revolutionary ground shaking energy with a distinct feminine flavor that rattled the bones of toxic masculinity & femininity.
What will be left when the dust clears and the earth settles?
This Full Moon correlates to the Scorpio New Moon on Nov 7th, 2018 - right after Election Day in the United States which saw sweeping change of diversity come through - along with a still firmly held outdated patriarchal set up.
It is no wonder we are feeling the rage, anger, & frustration rise up & through in the collective at this time, once again - a Full Moon asking us to remember what we intended last fall - after the rage of the Ford & Kavanaugh hearings was lapping at our backs, fire in our throats.
We knew what it meant to have that man make it through & what it would embolden in the near future. Here we are. How quickly we did a 180º & understood why Daenerys blazed a whole city to the ground. How quickly we understood we have to be that loud, proverbially speaking.
Scorpio is a sign that rules the reproductive organs. How ironic that we are experiencing another wave to reaffirm power & control over those very body parts & autonomous agency in womxn by religious centric patriarchy gargoyles - male and female alike.
Scorpio also reminds us of shame, guilt & fear over sexuality & as you can tell - there’s a lot of that in the collective because this is what happens when you repress your true nature, your true desire.
When you try to repress your own wholeness you try to oppress & control others.
These older generations were in a way fearful of or unequipped to face their own shadows & impurity. So now it’s all acting out in a myriad of dangerous ways for themselves & the rest of us.
Yet - If you embrace your own darkness, explore the underbelly with conscious awareness, your demons become allies; your magic expands, your intention becomes clearer and more steadfast & you access a particular type of Power that does not require the involvement of origami chains.
So you see, Scorpio is the perfect bed for this. Scorpio whom represents the regenerative qualities we possess - our ability to die & be reborn - a recycling of energy into different expressions. Makes me think of the many cycles our reproductive organs are capable of - the deaths they bleed or ejaculate - the nourishing cushion they make - the creation & the release.
Scorpio reminds us that Sex - is not reserved for only making a child - never has it been for that singular purpose. Scorpio reminds us that Sex is about energetic union, merging, soul connection & intimacy shared. Spiritual resources exchanged via arousal. Knowledge shared in telepathic channels. We know this - yet it has been stripped from us.
When it’s consensual, eager - it’s imprint is orgasmic and creative. When not consensual, disingenuous, it leaves an imprint that molders.
And either fucking way that goes it is the uterus bearing humans choice whether an entity of any expression is permitted to take up space there, to cocoon, and to grow.
Scorpio knows that “death” is not a true death - it’s a release from one form into the other form and so on and so forth it continues.
It is no mystery we are at a historic moment of well, human history - I’m sure many of us never really thought we would live to see what’s going on right now go on. We naively thought we were past that.
This Full Moon is yet another stark reminder here to illuminate what has been lurking beneath the mantles of our society, government, our mental, spiritual & emotional programming and our Earth.
I feel like I’m beating redundant sometimes when I talk about this repeatedly in various different ways - but I am finally starting to really “get” that it NEEDS to be repeated. The same way these scary societal events & threats need to happen for us to no longer be complacent. We need to drive it home what this patriarchial system is doing to us, where it’s coming from and we need to drive home the alternative programming to this story over and over until we collectively create that new norm & mindset.
I rarely ever talk about fixed stars with my astrology work because it’s just not my area of experience BUT this Full Moon OPPOSES the fixed star Algol - also known as Medusa’s decapitated head. The Sun sits exactly with Algol right now in Taurus - staring at Scorpio.
Most of us are familiar with Medusa - and how she was “cursed” with serpent hair and stare that turned men to stone by Athena. This was after she was raped by Poseidon. Some theorize that Athena cursed Medusa so that no man could harm her once more & that may be why the Gorgons head on her breastplate. But obviously it brings up questions around women’s role in upholding the patriarchy & division between women and then the inequality of standards between the masculine & feminine.
Medusa has been reclaimed by many a feminist movement as a symbol of defying patriarchy, feminine rage & also feminine power. And I feel she sits decapitated - staring at us at this time as another reminder of the shock & horror that we as a human species are capable of - the hypocrisy - & perhaps as another warning urging us to pay the fuck attention and take this all seriously.
Myth lives on - even after all these thousands of years - these stories hold truth. There are messages Mercury is helping to deliver straight to us from it’s movements with the Sun & near Algol AS WELL as it’s trine to Pluto, co-ruler to Scorpio, in Capricorn. That trine will bring the conversation into our homes, into our relationships, as close to face to face as possible.
These messages are meant shake up our sense of security & the status quo are further driven home by Uranus Venus mash up in Taurus here to electrify us with literal & proverbial violence that some of us have stuck our head in the sands to for far too long.
Uranus stands ready to shock if it means we will be jolted from our own personal resistance to change and then embody the type of resistance that brings transformation & evolution.
This is a momental astrological moment about reclaiming Self Worth.
For all genders this is happening.
But Womxn for sure are feeling & experiencing their Worthiness new ways - recognizing they have the absolute power to define what Worth & Value is to them.
It sounds ridiculous to say that again after all these years of Self Love movements where we’ve heard the whole schpeel etc etc but it’s starting to move from the superficial/going through the motions/conceptually understanding and instead it’s penetrating deeper, becoming part of the body, becoming part of the programming, becoming part of whose behind the law making. Bit by bit Uranus in Taurus will disrupt where we’ve been containing ourselves to the collective detriment.
It’s not easy - there are still blips where we lose ourselves but the wave of energy that we’ve been integrating is facilitating a another wave of Wholeness. There’s less patience, less sitting & waiting & observing beginning to happen - less waiting on the masculine to catch up - more moving forward and leading the story.
At least, this is the possibility that is presented to us. We have choice, here.
In closing on the micro level here…
If nothing else Scorpio is one of the masters of revealing Truth just as much as it can use it’s skill to be the master of concealing Truth.
On a personal level, all this chaos in the collective will bring up questions directly about what our personal Truths are and whether or not we are in clear communication with them or whether or not we have buried our Candor with fear, shame, or guilt.
The deep truth of a thing or of a being is often shrouded with a taboo lens - we often try to sterilize truth by touting it lightly - we don’t really mean it.
Scorpio is obsessed with the deep well of Truth - but often we incorrectly believe that that must mean this archetype will be fully Transparent with others and with themselves in an intimate setting but that is not entirely the full view here. Scorpio’s are obsessed with Intimacy because they are terrified of it.
There are many layers to Scorpio’s unveiling + accessing of the truth - we revisit the Underworld often here - it’s a long process of conjuring the conditions for alchemy.
And Liberation is a scary thing because of it’s expansive nature - and ultimately Scorpio energy - as obsessed as she is with the concept of the Freedom of Truth & the Change it bears - can fear that liberation for it is highly vulnerable and exposing in faculty & state.
Think of how uncomfortable and terrifying it is when a Scorpion sheds it’s exoskeleton - they are truly vulnerable no matter where they may be hiding.
The truth (pun intended) is - they have to allow it to happen, find ways to slough off the dead skin, or actually die in that particular vessel - either way an evolutionary cycle will be repeated - but wouldn’t it be so much more magical and spectacular to stay with this particular journey? To stay loyal to oneself in such a way?
Aren’t we curious to see what can become of us by actually allowing spiritual & energetic deaths to take place instead of only fantasizing about it?
The Scorpio Full Moon has conjured the perfect conditions to create what it desires - that liberating transformation that happens from embodying & accepting a Truth.
This is the ultimate scenario of saying “I don’t know that I want that” being on the fence about our desires intellectually - yet secretly aching, yearning for it to just fucking happen no matter how taboo, kinky, or divine the desire.
To get fucked, in the most Scorponic of ways.
